I am now able to provide a comprehensive description of how the course will proceed as we move to the end of the term. If you have questions after reading through the description below, feel free to contact your tutorial leader for additional assistance in sorting out either the course requirements or your particular situation.

The last day of classes for all Psychology courses is April 13, but we have been told that our regular rooms will remain available to us for the rest of this week in order to hold make-up classes and review sessions. Consequently for those who would like to participate, the following additional opportunities will be available.
Wednesday, April 15: I will lead a discussion in CLH – I from 8:30 to 10:30 on material assigned for the weeks when the strike was still in progress. I will help students work through the discussion questions provided for the Milgram podcast, the Zimbardo website, the first two chapters of the Butt textbook. I will focus on Milgram and Zimbardo in the first hour and on Butt’s chapters in the second hour.
Friday, April 17: Final exam review sessions will be held from 8:30 to 10:30 on this morning. More than one room will be used if attendance warrants. The sessions will be led by our Discussion Facilitators, and will be similar in nature to those held before previous exams.
